Took a cab down from our hotel .. walked in and the bar was packed. So we started to walk out and an observant server told us there was another bar downstairs (thank you!). Grabbed two seats at the downstairs bar... had a great salad and scallops wrapped in bacon. Food was good. Orange crushes were good too.

We thoroughly enjoyed Waterman's, and we will definitely return. The location is beautiful, as it is located right on the boardwalk. You can sit inside or outside and watch the waves roll in as you enjoy your dinner. The food is delicious, and the service is outstanding. We had she crap soup, and we split a seafood platter and a... More

This has to be one of the most refreshing drinks I've ever had. They use real fruit orange, tangerine, lemon juice. Very delicious. Me and my hubby only came for drinks but i can imagine that their food was good too. I recommend this place to everyone who is in VB. Enjoy an orange crush!

Waterman's is one of my favorites. Their orange crushes are the best I've had in VAB. In addition, I've never eaten anything that I didn't like there - the food is always good. It's right on the boardwalk, so it's a nice place to grab lunch or go for a walk on the beach after dinner. The complementary valet parking... More

We came to this restaurant with a party of 14 and a baby. They were super accommodating to our party and offered to seat us immediately in nearby seats if we were willing to split up or provided us with an estimated wait time if we all wanted to sit together. Throughout the night we received great service. There was... More

While vacationing in Sandbridge, 30 minutes south of Virginia Beach, I checked Tripadvisor for a waterfront restaurant. Waterman's reviews were right on the money! We had lunch sitting next to the window which looked out over the boardwalk, beach and the ocean! There is a nice outdoor patio but the weather didn't cooperate that day. The food was very good....

Went out to dinner here after a weekend wedding. Food was excellent - got the "Just Seafood" selection. Outside porch has great view of ocean and the prices were very reasonable. Would highly recommend and would go back again next time at the beach.

We came for a family meal and everyone tried something different. The shrimp queso appetizer came out steaming and was delicious, but the ribs and seafood made the meals. The broiled seafood was perfectly flavored with butter and white wine without overdoing it, and you don't even need silverware for the ribs, which they smoke in house. The fries were... More

Went to Waterman's the first night we were in Virginia Beach and enjoyed the food. Asked our waiter Mike, what he would recommend and he mentioned that his favorite was the parmesan peppercorn crusted flounder. I took his recommendation and really enjoyed it. My husband had the crab cakes and said they were good. We returned to Waterman's our last... More

I ate here for the first time on our last trip to the beach. It was awesome... I would and will eat there again.
